Charles Bridge, to the right Tri Stoleti. Pretty, eh?
We wanted a solid Czech meal while walking through the castle of Prague. Authentic was the mindset, the word we had been told to seek out and consume. The Castle itself has only two real food options: touristy small-time vendors selling overpriced doner and romantic outdoor chairs next to hill-side vineyards selling super expensive decent meals. Neither was our thing.
By the time we reached the riverbank we were hungry. Ready for our authentic Czech meal, if we could only find a place. For this particular outing (I’m getting there I promise), we took a hint from TripAdvisor. It pointed us (literally) to a nearby restaurant called Tri Stoleti. It was tucked away among the small wandering streets, just a moments walk from the Charles Bridge, a major landmark in Prague.
There are many amazing things to see and do in Prague: bridge strolls at night, the castle at sunset, innumerable amounts of theater in epic churches. But the most satisfying of Prague delights is the food! Yes, really, the food! From savory to sweet there are a few edibles that we stumbled upon in the Czech Republic that cannot go unannounced!
I love beer. Mostly light, lime-oriented Mexican Lager (California girl). I would not call myself a connoisseur because most beers are too dark, too hoppy, and too bitter for my taste, so when we discovered unfiltered beer in Prague I approached it with an open mind, but a weary eye. It is a bit unsettling to see foggy beer. Yellow, foamy, and served in the largest glass you have ever seen (Thor sized?), it initially looked like quite the beverage. But upon tasting it I was surprised! A powerful smell, thick body, and incredible flavor all led me to another half-liter. Unfiltered beer may not look normal, but it is incredibly tasty. Our amazing hosts let us know that unfiltered beer is actually quite common in Prague and made me a true convert in one outing. Continue reading →
